SMWS again tonight, this is a 19yo from Glen Garioch in Old Meldrum (another of my local Aberdeenshire distilleries)
Vanilla (lots and lots!)
Gentle peat smoke
The official tasting notes mention menthol and I almost get that…but not quite. It’s very subtle, perhaps a note of eucalyptus. Maybe.
Astonishingly complex whisky, wow. The palate doesn’t quite live up to the nose but it’s still a remarkable dram.
